I also would like to join the Book Club. I do have a tiny concern though: we won't be reading anything inappropriate, will we? I am in highschool, and I've just gotten sick of all the trash out there. I don't think this is the case, as you mentioned Sense and Sensibility, and Virgil's work. Just wanted to touch base. Am excited, as I don't get to discuss books much with people where I live, and read constantly!

I think you could almost bet that nothing inappropriate would even be considered.

That is what I like about this book club, all the books are generally considered classics (they have been so far), and are clean reading so that people of all ages can feel confortable reading them.

Great! This is just what I've been looking for! I am new on this forum and am amazed at how nice all the people in the "Books" category have been.

Hello Janefan, and welcome to the Book Corner forum and the club. I'll make sure we don't choose anything inappropriate. So far we've chosen recognized classics: I think it's important that we should choose books that people can get hold of easily and cheaply.

We're reading "Sense and Sensibility" by Jane Austen in March, so if you have a copy or can get one soon, please join in.

With a name like janefan, I'm going to guess she has a copy...

You guessed correctly! I've already read Sense and Sensibility, but my favorite hobby is reading favorite books over again, and I've not read it for a while. You catch something new every time.
